Guerlain gives you golden, glowing skin.


Guerlain recently re-launched their Terracotta collection for Summer 2013, so you can spot the perfect golden glow without having to experience any of the sun’s harmful rays. The bronzing powders from the Terracotta range have reached cult status amongst women the world over, with one Terracotta product being sold somewhere in the world every 20 seconds! There are new palettes and shades to suit every complexion.


For a flawless base try Terracotta Skin, a corrective foundation that gives your skin a healthy glow. The cream is silky and lightweight, with light-reflecting particles that give you a near-perfect finish. Easy to apply, you only need a small amount of the foundation for smooth and consistent coverage and natural-looking illumination.


The 4 Seasons Bronzing Powder is the star performer of this range, with each powder containing four complimentary shades that can be blended to crate a natural, healthy tan suitable to wear throughout the year.  Apply the bronzer in a sweeping ‘three’ shape starting with your forehead, then your cheekbones and finally your jawline adding a little extra to protruding features like your forehead, nose, cheekbones and chin for an instant, natural glow.


To complete the overall sun-kissed look there is the Sunless Self-Tanning Gel, a two-in-one tinted gel that gives your skin and instant colour boost while moisturising at the same time. This can be simply smoothed over the whole body and becomes visible after just one hour but lasts up too four days. Made from a special formula of DHA and Argan oil, just remember to wash your hands after applying or use gloves to avoid the giveaway tanned palms.
